Seasonal route: The road is subject to closure in winter. Acadia National Park Loop Road is a scenic wonderland with its mountains, ponds, rocky cliffs and Atlantic Ocean coastline views. The southern part of the road, in particular, offers stunning views of the Maine coast. Take advantage of the pullouts for expansive views of the scenery.

This 27-mile loop road on Mount Desert Island within Acadia National Park reveals the natural beauty for which Maine is known. Striking views accompany each turn, from the basic yet lovely simplicity of a tree-lined road with rock ledges to expansive ocean views. Sand Beach provides an interesting contrast to the wooded, pink-and-gray granite hills.
